The Track-Only Porsche Cayman GT4 Proves That Metal and Plastic Can Be Replaced With Natural Fibers

The 2020 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR is a race-spec version of the road-going Cayman GT4. It is essentially identical to the 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport race that Porsche introduced in early 2019, but it features a body kit made from natural-fiber composite materials.

Porsche first introduced natural-fiber composite materials on the Cayman GT4 Clubsport, which features doors and the rear wing made from this mix, but the MR version comes with an entire body crafted from fibers sourced from renewable raw materials. Developed specifically for the 24 Hours of Nurburgring race that took place in late September 2020, the 202 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR won’t become a full-fledged production, but the materials developed for it will probably be used on production models in the future.
